Where is Tabriz?

Northwesrten IRAN - TABRIZ

TABRIZ, the capital of the northwestern province of Azerbaijan, has for centuries enjoyed a great reputation as a center of oriental culture.

Its development from a naturally favored oasis at the foot of the volcano Sahand to today's commercial center, along with descriptions of its many artists and craftsmen, could fill many volumes.

The tradition that TABRIZ was founded in the 8th century by the wife of Harun al-Rashid does not bear historical scrutiny. The origins of the town stretch far back into antiquity.

Timur (1336-1405)
Shah Ishmail I (1501-1524)Founder of Safavid Dynasty
Shah Abbas(1587-1629)

All conquered TABRIZ as a fulcrum between east and west and made it into one of the great cities of their empires, but it was in Shah Abbas the Great (1587-1629 CE) that TABRIZ found its most cultured patron.

The people of TABRIZ have been spared the devastation of war and severe natural catastrophes such as earthquake over the centuries.

In the Middle Ages, TABRIZ witnessed a blossoming of the fine arts that influenced the development of carpet design.

Manuscript illuminators, silk embroiders, miniature painters and metal workers all inspired the carpet weavers.

The early 18th century saw the end of the Safavid Empire and the decline of the town. Craftsmanship fell into decay.
